Gooseberry Planet is an award-winning software platform, which uses game-based learning and a wealth of ready-made lesson resources to empower teachers to deliver online safety education to 5-13 year olds.  It is available in both web-based and app-based formats and has five different age levels with 12 lessons in each.  A rapid fire quiz at the beginning and end of each level highlights areas where children may lack knowledge, alerting teachers to topics within the resources where their attention should be concentrated and providing evidence of learning over the course.  Each scenario-based lesson is accompanied by a digital workbook, online game and parent advice.     

Gooseberry Play consists of three portals that work alongside each other:

Gooseberry Teacher

Gooseberry Teacher works with Gooseberry Student, allowing the teacher to monitor the class results. The key is highlighting who is potentially vulnerable. The Gooseberry Teacher platform is full of resources, including lesson plans, slide decks and background information. A teacher app provides access to the digital workbooks which can be displayed on interactive whiteboards.
